Demonstrate your ability to use OneSearch as a platform.
What is OneSearch? OneSearch aggregates the library's physical and digital collections into one searchable database. How does it benefit students? This is a one-stop search function for students and faculty. Similar to the popular Google web searches: OneSearch will retrieve all available materials from your institution for easier browsability. OneSearch allows for quick physical material requests and electronic material requests in one place. OneSearch saves search terms and auto-populates subject terms. Users can email and link materials as needed. Switching between finding specific material types is easy. Articles, books, audiovisual materials - a user only needs to select the appropriate filters. Creating annotations and works cited pages are another quick click for users.
